Call for Proposals: 20×20 @ YAFCON 2020

Got 6 minutes and 40 seconds to tell us about the incredible things you’re doing to cultivate the next generation of architects? Come share your story at YAFCON 2020: The Empathic Architect this October. We’re seeking up to 6 presenters for a Pecha Kucha (PK)-style session on Friday, Oct. 30 for a session titled From the Ground Up: Cultivating the Next Generation. (What the heck is a PK?)

A good 20×20 presentation is creative, tells a great story, and shares something inspiring (with a little dash of humor mixed in).

It’s a format made for designers by designers. We know you’ve done some pretty amazing things to support the pipeline into the profession and we want to hear about them — whether it’s your work in a K–12 classroom, a brilliant summer camp program, or an innovative approach to mentorship.

We’ve only got time for 5-6 speakers, so pitch us your best idea by Sept. 24 and we’ll get back with you at the beginning of October.

This form is now closed.
